The Cookie Diet has arrived in Australia. But is eating cookies to lose weight too good to be true?
The Cookie Diet sounds perfect. All you have to do is eat the daily allocated cookies (nine of them) every two hours, and you will lose weight. The Cookie Diet claims to have helped over 6 million people reach their weight loss goals. Will it be the right diet for you?
Let’s look at The Cookie Diet and see what it’s all about.
1. Where the Cookie Diet Began:
The Cookie Diet was created by renowned physician, author, and weight-loss expert Dr. Sanford Siegal.
While Dr Diegal was writing a book on what natural foods suppress hunger, he decided to formulate a type of weight-loss food that was also delicious, and what better way than in a cookie. Because everyone loves cookies.
Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet is a proven, three-step plan that has helped more than a half-million people lose weight since 1975. It’s a safe, fast, and affordable approach to weight loss and weight maintenance.
Dr. Siegal recommends the best way to lose weight is not by starving yourself, but by eating little and often.
How often? Every two hours between wake-up and bedtime, this includes nine small snacks and one generous meal.
2. How Does The Cookie Diet work?
Don’t worry – you aren’t replacing all of your meals with cookies!
How the Cookie Diet works is to reduce your daily calorie intake to 1000 to 1200 calories per day. Most diets work on this reduction in daily calories.
But where The Cookie Diet is different, is that you eat every two hours which eliminates the hunger most people feel when they are dieting. So half of your daily calorie intake is from the cookies (nine of them in fact), then one meal per day is a generous 500 – 700 calorie meal.
Each of the cookies is just 60 calories.
You stick to The Cookie Diet until you get to your goal weight.
Once your goal weight is achieved, eat healthy meals, and enjoy the cookies as a low-calorie snack between meals.
Seriously, all you need is a bag of cookies!
3. How Can I Possibly Lose Weight Eating Biscuits?
The reduction in calories is what makes The Cookie Diet work. The diet helps control your hunger by eating ‘little and often’, plus the cookies contain a special mix of proteins that naturally suppresses your hunger.
So eating the cookies every two hours, and eating your main meal, plus engaging in regular light exercise such as walking 2 – 3 times per week and drinking 8 glasses of water each day -s all it takes.
This diet is not a fad, it has been going strong for the last 40 years.
4. What are the Cookie flavours?
Freshly baked in Australia, the cookies are just as delicious as your favourites and come in four mouth-watering flavours:
- Chocolate Brownie
- Maple Pancake
- Cinnamon Oatmeal.
5. What is in the Cookies?
Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet cookies are normal cookies, they contain no drugs (boo), caffeine or stimulants. They are just like normal cookies just low calorie and contain a special mixture of proteins and additional fibre that naturally suppress hunger and keeps you feeling fuller for longer.
The Cookies are all-natural, kosher and vegetarian. They contain a mixture of natural proteins that naturally control hunger. Made right here in Australia, they are all-natural with no artificial flavours or sweeteners.

10. What the experts say about the Cookie Diet
Health experts do advise the Cookie Diet is NOT a long term solution and you should talk to your doctor before starting any weight loss program.
They say the cookies might be OK in the short term, but they do lack important vitamins and minerals like iron and calcium.
Dietitian, Kerry Leech, says the wider the range of foods you eat, the greater the range of nutrients they have and the healthy our diet is.
